Featuring raw oysters and fresh seafood with international influences from executive chef Eddie Barrett, BeetleCat is a trendy restaurant and bar in Atlanta’s Inman Park neighborhood. The menu transports you to the New England coast at the upstairs dining room and oyster bar, while the downstairs Den lends itself to a 70s surf shack. Enjoy fresh air on one of the two patios, both upstairs and downstairs. BeetleCat is open nightly for dinner and offers brunch in the Den on Saturdays and Sundays.

    The brunch is not great. 1) My husband's hash was brunt to a crisp and the donuts were not well made. 2) It appeared that the server didn't want to be there - not friendly at all. 3) The place could use an update. I used to frequent Beetlecat years ago, and now it just looks unkept and dusty. 4) I had to ask the server to clean our table upon arrival.

    Food was great! I had to ask for the correct bill three times due to items being on my bill that I didn’t order. Made me wonder if they were hoping I didn’t see it. Will not go back.

    Prior to visiting Beetlecat, we read that the lobster was the number item to order. So we did just that…it was oookkk, but surely not worth $40. The fry’s were delicious (waffle fries with fair amount of season salt).

    Do not let them seat you downstairs inside. Despite having a reservation, they sat as at a table near the downstairs bar. Upstairs has a great ambiance, as well as outside. Downstairs is low ceilings and extremely loud. Service was terrible. Food was actually quite good. Very mad I wasn’t offered a better table for no reason. Would have been better to be asked if downstairs at the bar area was ok.

    I came here for a nice, romantic dinner for my birthday and they truly didn’t disappoint. We ordered the baked oysters and fry bread to start and they were delicious! We also ordered the lobster rolls and I can see why it’s their signature dish. The butter and warmth of the lobster married perfectly together and was a nice touch. I would definitely come back and recommend my family and friends as well. Only downside was they didn’t do anything special since it was my birthday, although I noted it in my reservation

    We live nearby. I’ve eaten more than my fair share here. I’ve never been disappointed and most of the time I’m pleasantly surprised. This is especially true of items that appear simple on the menu. There’s always a technical touch, a flavor that lifts the most simple sounding preparations. The staff, to a person, is friendly and competent.

    We went for brunch. Host was extremely polite and sat us very quickly. Server was excellent and extremely friendly. Food arrived promptly. I had the fried chicken sandwich and a Samoa donut. Both were delicious. My friend had the lobster roll, which she said was very good but pricey for the size. Will definitely be back.

    Everyone enjoyed the night and the food, as always was good. The only disappointment was that the Lobster roll price increased while the size got smaller. On top of that, the server dropped 1/2 of my meat behind my chair when serving us. Instead of saying anything, or bringing us new lobster meat, they ignored it. So I got a smaller sandwich for $40 with literally 1/2 the meat.

    One of the worst serving experiences of my life. It was my birthday and the server was aware of this and never check in with our table for over 40 minutes sometimes. The food was super late and the dessert came while we were STILL eating dinner it was so rude and chaotic. We were also not told we would be sitting in the bar area of the restaurant which is not at all what we wanted for the occasion. It was loud and chaotic and completely unprofessional for the nice meal we were expecting. The food was great but absolutely never coming back.

    I have heard so many great things, but maybe too many as the food did not live up to my expectations. I was so looking forward to trying the Lobster Roll. It was dry and chewy unfortunately and I couldn’t even finish it. The chairs at the tables are oddly high and made for an uncomfortable dining experience on top of the food experience. With so many options in Atlanta, I don’t think I will bother with a second chance here. I know many other people love it here, so give it try and I hope you have a better experience than I did!

    We were overall very impressed and pleased with our experience. We ordered raw oysters first and they didn't arrive until well after we'd finished our entrees and our first round of cocktails. Also the fries that came with the fish and chips were very overdone and the fish was slightly burned in spots. The lobster roll was 10/10 and the fries that accompanied it were perfect. A little uneven service in the order of arrival of things and the fish and chips could have used improvement. Everything else was excellent though and we'll be back!

    I visited Beetlecat for a brunch date. I order the lobster roll, poke bowl and two different donuts. The food was good but nothing spectacular. I asked for water with lemon upon arriving, it never came. We asked again and it never came. The server gave good recommendations without describing flavor, preparation or any other information. I would go back to try the dinner menu. But I will not be returning for brunch

    Oh my gosh—Beetlecat Brunch? YES PLEASE! I was blown away by the amazing food—and service—at Beetlecat this past Sunday (Sept 2022). Our server, Angel, was amazing. The food? DELISH! Had the Plain Jane donut (‘cause glazed is my fav) and it melted in my mouth. I couldn’t decide if I wanted the lobster roll or the blue crab omelette, so my friend ordered one and I ordered the other and we split it. The blue crab omelette is now my absolute favorite breakfast thing in the world. It was soooo good and a generous amount of crab—perfect crab/egg ratio to get some of each in every bit. The lobster roll was super tasty and came on a small brioche round bun. A bit small for $39 (side of waffle fries…I probably would have preferred fruit if I had asked for a substitute). The taste was amazing though, so definitely a yummy treat. When (not “if”!) I go back, it will be the blue crab omelette and another donut (may try the churro donut…it looked so good). Thanks Beetlecat! You did not disappoint!

    It’s supposed to be a high-end seafood restaurant, but it’s just a trashy night club. This is one of the loudest restaurants I’ve ever experienced. There are many better restaurants in Inman park, where you won’t risk hearing loss. Avoid Beetlecat
